Obscure, strange, and sometimes downright horrible wrestling merchandise that someone paid good money to obtain.

Crapper E-Squared submitted this video and writes: Around the time the “WWF Aggression” compilation CD came out, Run-DMC came out with a video for their song “The Kings” which was DX’s theme song for a brief period. I noticed Triple H, Stephanie and Tori walking in the video, but I wonder why the Hardys were in this video. I hated, Continue Reading...

Someone Bought This: WCW Monday Nitro Golf Shirt

11 Submitted by on Sat, 25 May 2013, 23:14
While cruising around The Internet Archives’ Wayback Machine, I came across the WCWwrestling.com store as it appeared in 1997. It featured this WCW Monday Nitro Golf polo shirt. Look; I know Golf shirts and clothes in general have a reputation for being pretty ugly, but this is particularly bad. It looks like some kind of funky, awful Neapolitan ice cream with that Continue Reading...

Crapper E-Squared sent this music video in and writes: This music video consists of two songs from Canadian rap group, Rascalz. Cut to 1:55 for “Sharpshooter” and you will see Bret Hart appear. He had his “Best there is” quote in the song. A little sidenote, this song was also on the soundtrack to “Hitman Hart: Wrestling With Shadows.” Well… Continue Reading...

Someone Bought This: Coliseum Video t-shirt from Barber Shop Window

Our good buddies and good pals at Barber Shop Window have all sorts of funny, creative, and unique wrestling-related t-shirts, but this Coliseum Video t-shirt in particular caught my attention. How cool (and nerdy) is that? I just love how obscure it is because a good 99% of the people who see you wearing it will have no idea what Continue Reading...

It Came From YouTube: Stone Cold Steve Austin and D-Lo Brown 1-800-COLLECT commercial

14 Submitted by on Thu, 23 May 2013, 22:42
Crapper Paul S. submitted this commercial and writes: I don’t know if you ever did this one. I love that the whole premise of the commercial is built around Austin being unprofessional in the ring. Oh yeah and remember what life was like before everyone had mobile phones, and having to awkwardly spell 1-800-Collect on a payphone was actually a Continue Reading...

It Came From YouTube: Konnan’s stupid music video, and Disco Inferno’s response

In January of 1999, Konnan (AKA: Konan, AKA: K-Dawg, AKA: The Wannabe Gangsta) debuted his stupid “Bow Wow Wow” video on WCW Monday Nitro to promote the WCW Mayhem: The Music album which featured the song. It featured rapper “Mad One” (who?). They played it over and over and over and over again in the following weeks. Thankfully, Disco Inferno responded with Continue Reading...

Someone Bought This: Bill Goldberg car phone (literally!)

Crapper Chris Morgan found this WCW Goldberg telephone on eBay (it’s a “car phone”, get it? Yuk-yuk!) and writes: In these modern times, most people strive to be modern men and women. The quest for the latest technology can be all-consuming. So what better thing to buy then a clunky, corded phone dedicated to a long retired wrestler from a long defunct Continue Reading...

It Came From YouTube: John Cena wants you to buy a razor really bad!

7 Submitted by on Fri, 17 May 2013, 00:31
Crapper Justin Cook submitted this commercial and writes: John Cena in a Gillete commercial. I don’t remember ever seeing him with a beard, so this commercial is really odd to me. Boy, John Cena screaming at me like a maniac makes me really want to buy this razor! Okay, not really… Geez, switch to Decaf, John! But thanks for the Continue Reading...

8 Submitted by on Thu, 09 May 2013, 14:22
Crapper David Coen sent in this Sable beanie Teddy Bear he found on eBay complete with hantprints on its (thankfully nonexistent) breasts. You know; for kids! The bear came out around 1999 and it was part of a series of beanie bears meant to cash in on the hot Beanie Baby craze going on at the time. It’s a reference Continue Reading...

The above cover image and all information used in this induction are courtesy of Doug Gilford’s Mad Magazine cover site. It’s an excellent collection of every Mad Magazine Continue Reading...

This is just the kind of breaking news I turn to ESPN for! Yes; Cody will soon come with mustache as illustrated (but sadly, no crown- “King Cody” would’ve been even cooler!)....

Crapper Paul S. submitted this and writes: In his very own workout video Scott Steiner shows you how to lose weight, by doing exercises that would be impossible for anyone without a Steiner-esc physique. “Maybe it’s right… maybe it ain’t… but it’s what I do.” – Steiner sums it up as only he can.

It Came From YouTube: Karate Fighters Tournament: Sunny Vs. A midget luchador

5 Submitted by on Fri, 19 April 2013, 00:00
This is a 1997 commercial from Raw for Milton Bradley Karate Fighters (think “Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em Robots” but with Karate action figures kicking instead of robots punching) featuring a “tournament” where a midget Luchador named “Shrimp Scampi” (har-har!) competes in a grueling match. (Spoiler: Shrimp Scampi loses). But more important than any of that, the video features the beautiful Continue Reading...

It Came From YouTube: Rare Crush song from WrestleMania: The Album

2 Submitted by on Thu, 18 April 2013, 19:46
Aloha, Crappers! This is “Cold Crush”; a song that was somehow only available on the European versions of “WrestleMania: The Album”. Oh, those lucky Europeans! I wish we Americans had been treated to this gem of a song. “Go! Go! Go Crush!”. I prefer “Go Ninja, Go Ninja, Go!”, myself… Audio courtesy of the Demo button on any late-80′s Casio Continue Reading...
